That worked, pretty much. So far, I like this much better than using a
main_template. It makes more sense to me. You have a design in which
you place the content, instead of the otehr way around.

But of course, since the object has a template that ouputs
html/head/body tags, and the main template also does that (it has too)
I get two of them.

The question is, should I strip everything outside of the body and
only insert the body, or should we require that all grok-views that
make use of this only returns the actual body?

Opinions? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Anyone want to see the proof of concept code?
